Saturday, January 7th
Location: Memorial Stadium, Bristol
Goodness me -- Alex McLeish said he'd take the FA Cup seriously, but really....a full strength starting XI to face League Two side Bristol Rovers? (and yes, I'm convinced Non-Sir truly believes that Emile Heskey is on the same level as Gabriel Agbonlahor). McLeish already acknowledged that the players are exhausted -- not sure this is going to help any.
Ah well, UTV!
Bristol Rovers Starting XI: Michael Poke, Danny Woodards, Cian Bolger, Aaron Downes, Gary Sawyer, Craig Stanley, Andy Dorman, Chris Zebroski, Eliot Richards, Mustapha Carayol, Joe Anyinsah.
